I don't use them but a friend does and it does soften the flash. But if you bounce off a wall or ceiling you are effectively making the light source much much bigger than any diffuser.
Still comes back to being able to easily target the flash direction. It can be hectic at a wedding and you might not want the added hassle of constantly redirecting a flash (or not have a diretable flash) and so diffuser might work well for you.
