But the NVC/Consulate will require the original at that time.

Yes, original documents will be needed later for the embassy interview.

NO, a photocopy will be fine. The beneficiary may be asked to show the original copy, not the petitioner.

Does the petitioner need to submit an original/certified copy of a birth certificate or will a copy be ok? Thanks

The petitioner only needs to prove he/she is a US Citizen. That may of may not require a birth certifificate. A naturalization certificate and/or passport page would work just as well.

There's no way I would send my Original naturalization certificate to USCIS, consulate or my fiance for her interview so a copy better be just fine!

No! Don't send any original documentation unless specifically requested. I have never known the embassy/consulate to request anything from the petitioner other than affidavit of support with supporting documents.
