This is a run on sentence but something like :

Your presence is enough of a present, but if you choose to give us a gift, we would appreciate you shipping it (for free) through the registry, rather than carrying it to the shower, as we are travelling and will be unable to transport it easily. Thanks for your understanding!

Here’s another possible idea: cash gift registries are really common now and you can just avoid the issue of shipping altogether if you use it. We put a lot of thought into it and decided on depositagift.com – basically you set up your registry like any other but when your guests ‘buy’ a gift, you just get cash. No shipping to worry about at all, and you can spend your gifts how you like when you get home.

Good luck!

We’re also traveling for our wedding, but many of our guests aren’t, and several of them have a set in stone solid beilef that a gift is only something that you hand to someone. Mailing a present only counts if you absolutely aren’t going to see them in person. 

Our registry carefully walks through our preferences, (no gift, kiva, a money registry, williams sonoma) and we’ve just accepted that we have to drive back from the wedding because we are going to get things in person at the reception.
