Perhaps you could fit it into the wording about the general location, as in: "Reception to be held on the lawn at ____" Or something similar. I think working in the phrase "on the lawn" will nudge women not to wear stilettos, but still sound elegant enough not to be out of place on an invitation.

Personally, I just put a FAQ on my wedding website and mentioned that women would want to avoid spiky heels because the ceremony was being held on grass.

No matter how you word things the fact is some ladies will just not feel properly dressed unless they have on heels. 

You may want to think of having a basket supplying rubbersoled footies or flip flops from a local craft store.  They could be decorated and given as favor.

This would help you guest to be more comfortable.

I like the "on the lawn" idea. It still sounds classy but still gets the point across. The flipflop idea isn’t bad either, if you could budget it in.

I like the "on the lawn" idea, too.  Sounds nicer.  Also, to prevent it turning into a Hawaiian shirt casual affair, perhaps you can add something like:

Elegant Resort Attire or Elegant Summer Attire
