How do I word the reception card...

to indicate that ladies might want to bring comfortable shoes to change into and a wrap. My daughter's reception is being held outside, and we don't want anyone's heels sinking into the ground...
Thanks.

How about, "Outdoor reception following the ceremony." Or "Garden reception...." ?

maybe people will think "outdoor" means patio; you could try "reception on the lawn"?

We are doing outdoors overlook the harbor. On the wedding invitation with the address we listed the name of the lawn. They should know from that.

Or on the invitation--
Garden Reception to follow

Why is it necessary to indicate where the reception will be held other than the name and address of the facility? If the ceremony and reception are in the same location, then it should be sufficient to say "Reception following the ceremony."

The reception is being held in a different location than the wedding. The dinner is in my neighbor's garden and the dancing is in mine. We wanted the ladies to know that their heels might sink into the lawn. So we finally settled on Garden Reception.

I have absolutely ruined heels at outdoor occasions, especially groundbreaking dedications. The leather on the high heel is peeled back like a banana when the heel sinks into ground, especially if it is rough ground. So the hostess is being thoughtful with this addition to her invitations.
