שלושים יום לחודש אדר הראשון שהוא ראש חודש לאדר השני

"The thirtieth day of Adar the First; which is the beginning of Adar the Second."

For dates like that, hopefully you're using a computer auto-typeset Ketubah that can rearrange the lettering accordingly. If you're trying to squeeze all of that into the small blank provided in a pre-printed Ketubah, print very, very small!
