If you were having a black tie affair, you would put that at the bottom corner of the reception card, or on the invitation if no reception card is included.  So I’m sure its fine to do the same.  Or if you describe the reception as "informal, outdoor" I’m sure most guests will take the hint not to wear a suit or heels.  I would guess that most will still wear shoes, but I don’t know your friends…

If you have space on the invitation, go for it.  I think it’s cute and you personality shows through in the way you’re wording it.  You’re going for a casual affair, so I think the wording fits the feeling you want.

I think it’s really cute and would go for it. I’d probably take out the second line so it flows better. This way it is short and sweet enough to put on the bottom on the invite instead of having to add in an insert.

roses are red, violets are blue
we’re dressing semi-casually
so make sure you do to!

I would love to know about the natural theme (i.e. organic fabric thing )and that does not come across in your cute rhyme. Is there any way to give guests a little more of a clue??

maybe make a little insert card, put the rhyme at the top, and then below put something like:

"as part of our natural themed wedding, the BMs will be wearing x and the GMs will be wearing x. please feel free to match our theme by wearing your favorite natural, summery clothing." 

then you still get to use the rhyme (which i love!) but the guests also get a little explanation into your theme, which is probably pretty important to you, i’m guessing.

If you are having a website you could put the info. on there as well and then just mention the dress in a few words on the invite? Here is what some friends put on their website to let people know the vibe (I also like how they mention "unless you prefer to wear them" as some people will prefer to be more dressed up):

 "It will be hot down south, so please dress comfortably above all else. We suggest comfortable cocktail attire for the wedding. No ties or jackets are required for the men, unless you would prefer to wear them. And, as always, flip flops are enthusiastically encouraged!"
