I really think it’s better to leave it alone.  In many other countries and cultures it’s customary to give money for weddings so if they want to give you a gift they will get you that.  And if they are curious about what a registry is they can always click the link on your website and put two and two together.  I suggest you don’t over think this one too much and leave it alone.

I would just say exactly what it is.  “In America it’s common for the Bride and Groom to be to go to their favorite stores and register for gifts that they would like to have.  The guests of the wedding go to that store and print out a list and they can pick from the list of things to buy.  Its just an option, gifts are optional, but very appreciated.”  …and so on.

what about something like “A modern American tradition is for the couple to register. Registries serve as ideas of potential gifts that best illustrate the couple’s needs, style and taste. Gifts are not necessary, but appreciated”
