    we got ours through ketubah.com. It’s beautiful and we were very happy with them. But, we got orthodox text eventhough we are conservative!

    We spent the extra for custom text, although our situation was more extreme than yours.  The ketubah we really liked had only one option for same-sex couples, and that was a version with only the heading, not the text, in Hebrew.  NotFroofy really wanted that artwork.  I really wanted the ketubah to be in Hebrew as well as English.  After months of looking around to see if there wasn’t some other art she liked that had more text options, we finally bit the bullet and paid the extra for the custom text, even though that doubled the cost.

    However, the way I feel about it is that the ketubah is something I’m going to have on my wall for the rest of my life.  So I’d rather splurge on that than on something that is just for the wedding day.

    @robin6479:  

    You will have this ketubah hanging in your home for years and years to come. Of course, it’s worth it to spend the money on a Custom text. I was worried about it at first, but realized I was spending a fortune on flowers that wouldn’t be around the next day, but worried about spending the money on a beautiful piece of artwork? We ended up using the Hebrew from one text and writting our own English text. Love it.

    The folks at JessyJudaica.com/KetubahGallery.com, made everything so easy for us. I defintely recommend using them. They also have the most AMAZING Kippot!
