Ugh, if I saw this, I would think it was really rude.  Your guests are adults.  You should trust them to know that smacking gum through a wedding ceremony/reception is inappropriate.  Putting it in an invitation is unnecessary, and to me, screams “I can’t trust you to act civilized so I am going to tell you how.”

Sorry if that’s harsh.

Um… No. Honestly I’d be really put off if someone told me not to chew gum.

Personally, I never chew gum. Haven’t touched the stuff since I had braces in high school. And I would still find a “no gum chewing” remark in the insert to be really obnoxious.

Agree with PPs.  Unforunately, you’ll just have to deal with it.

I think it’s disgusting too, but you can’t tell adults not to chew gum. A good photographer can edit gum out too.

Only if your wedding is taking place in Singapore where chewing gum is illegal and you are protecting your guests from breaking the law. It’s pretty rude otherwise. 

Some people may be in the process of quitting smoking so they may need nicorette or something like that during the reception. Others might want to freshen their breath with gum post eating. I’d assume most adults know not to keep chewing while a photo is being taken. 

Do you trust them not to chew if the photographer chooses to take photos during the meal?

I really wouldn’t do it, I would think it was really weird if I saw that on an invite, Plus i don’t think you would even notice on the day.
