I need help coming up with a tactful way of informing our guests about our registries on our wedding website. I was thinking so saying something like this “Your presence at our wedding is gift enough but for those of you that…..” and that is where I got stuck? Anyone have any ideas???
I also wanted to suggest donating to a charity in lieu of gifts but I don’t know the best way to mention that either.

Do you really want to incorporate something letting people know they really don’t have to bring a gift?
(We just had a separate page on our website that said “Registries” with a link to the two. No explanation.)

I agree with PP. You really don’t have to put an explanation. Just make a page for registries and list a link to each of your registries. Just keep it simple “In lieu of gifts, we request a donation to XYZ charity” then add a link to the charity

Just link up your registry.
You don’t need to add anything about not bringing gifts (its actually “poor etiquette” to say that) and if you have a charity registry, then link it up.
But, most people probably won’t do the charity thing. They want to buy the newlyweds a gift to start their new lives.
Why not just link up your physical gift registry, and if you get money from people (which you will), then donate it to charity yourself?
