Which Single PRIME Lens for a Wedding?

I have a Tamron 18-200 that I am very comfortable using. I am looking for a good "portrait" prime for a wedding on July 1st. I have rented the 100mm WR from CameraLensRentals[dot]com and loved it - except... in a banquet hall type environment, I would have to have a fair amount of distance to frame the subject AND hope no one moved into the frame unexpectedly.

So, not as a professional, but as a guest, would you bring a 70mm f/2.4, 43mm f/1.9, or 21mm f/3.2?

And then maybe use it for fireworks 3 days later...
