My husband and I submitted our I-130 with a concurrent I-485 last week with our "temporary" marriage certificate, which is valid through October 2013. The State of Hawaii is notoriously slow to issue official marriage certificates and it can take up to 120 days to receive. Therefore they issue the temporary certificate within two days of the ceremony and you have to wait for the permanent certificate. Because of that, we submitted the temporary certificate with the I-130 application. However, we just received the official marriage certificate in the mail! Should we send a copy to USCIS or wait to see if they request it? Or take it to our interview?

You bring it to the interview, unless USCIS issues a request for evidence for it, in which case you submit it in response to that request.
You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
