Traditionally, it is done before the ceremony.  The Jewish ceremony typically has two parts – Ketubah (where the “legal” stuff is done) and Chuppah.  I am having an interfaith wedding as well.  Our rabbi wants to do each part separately which is more traditiona.  I would check with your officiant to see how they want to do it.

My fiancé and I are also doing an interfaith ceremony and we also wanted to incorporate the ketubah. We wrote our own version of the traditional Aramaic text (in Englis) and we’ve decided that we are going to have it brought up during the ceremony and we will read our text and sign it as part of the ceremony before the official “I do”s.

the ketubah is signed prior to the ceremony. At the ceremony it is read aloud. that being said if the rabbi is not a stickler I don’t see why it can’t be signed during the ceremony. Just make sure you have a table under the chuppah large enough for it.

We plan to sign the ketubah during our ceremony – since we are getting married on a Saturday night, we don’t have enough time to sign it prior to the wedding after shabbat. Our rabbi (who is Conservative) is officiating and he didn’t have a problem with it; he actually said he has done it that way several times before and actually suggested it for us.
