try this,

JLabel l1 = new JLabel("Please Enter City"),
   l1.setFont( new Font(font, Font.PLAIN, 16) );
JPanel p = new JPanel();
   p.add(l1);
javax.swing.JOptionPane.showInternalMessageDialog(this.getParent(), p,"Information Message",javax.swing.JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);

import javax.swing.UIManager;
import java.awt.*;

public class ConfigOptionPaneLanguage {
  public static void main(final String[] args) {
//
  
    Font font = new Font("Dialog", Font.BOLD,20);
    UIManager.put("OptionPane.buttonFont", font);

that changes the font for all option pane instance you open in your app, not sure if thats what you want!

if not, better create your own dialog!

Perhaps you can set it when you create some Option panes
and then set it to another font at another time
if you post your piece of code, pmaybe we could figure out how
to use it in your particular situation.
I ran this particular program and saw that it works.

Now I ran the code below and it first showed me pane
with big font and then showed me next option pane
with smalle font

import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
import javax.swing.UIManager;
import java.awt.*;

public class ConfigOptionPaneLanguage {
  public static void main(final String[] args) {
//
  
    Font font = new Font("Dialog", Font.BOLD,20);
   Font font1 = new Font("Dialog", Font.BOLD,12);
    UIManager.put("OptionPane.buttonFont", font);   

    JFrame parent = new JFrame();


    String multiLineMsg[] = { "Hello,", "World"} ;
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(parent, multiLineMsg);

       UIManager.put("OptionPane.buttonFont", font1);
        JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(parent, multiLineMsg);



  }
}
