I need help with a good way to word the insert that will be going in the wedding invitation. These inserts will only be for the Canadian guests invitations

They are marrying in the US, but are going to reside in Canada, they have registered at several places in Canada,(with the bride having a US address some of the registry places wouldn't let them use the groom's Canadian address, so actual stuff purchased with the registry will be shipped to the US) for ease of the Canadian guests we would like for them to either ship the gifts to the grooms address or maybe invite the bride and groom over for a visit upon return from the honeymoon, it makes no sense for people to take gifts down only for them to bring them all back, gift cards wouldn't be an issue, cash won't be an issue but any actual gifts like toasters would be best received in Canada,

I don't want it to seem like only cash and gift cards are a good idea, as one of my sons great aunts always buys very nice towels and then will add very fancy edges, everyone gets them, all look forward to them, but for her to transport them then the kids to just turn around and transport them back doesn't make a lot of sense to me, especially because most brides and grooms don't open the gifts at the wedding

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

How about something like...

To save space in your luggage and ours, please consider leaving gifts with Bride's mother [or someone else who lives locally in Canada] before the wedding at [address].

Or something like...

If you wish to provide a gift to Bride and Groom, [Registry] is set up to provide free shipping to [home address] for your convenience.

Never, ever, ever include gift info with the invitation. It's the epitome of declasse, even in this era. Let word of mouth (mom, wedding party, FMIL) spread the word. You can even create a wedding site with the info.

But it should never be included with the invitation.
