Diffuse flash in daylight or not? That is the question.

What is the general consenus of using a diffuser over the flash head in daylight, for close-ups of people? Many pros say its advisable, as it gives a softer lighting but I've always thought this technique was only for studio and inside rooms, etc. not outside on a sunny day or even a cloudy day. How would this technique compare to direct flash for a daylight civil ceremony wedding?
