We must keep in mind that using a zoom lens doesn't mean you have to zoom. You can use a 70-200 f/2.8 at 135'ish mm and keep it there for the duration and shoot nearly wide open for the entire wedding and get compelling shots. The zoom itself doesn't create one iota of "inconsistency".

... or shoot with a zoom and keep your hand off the zoom ring (warm smile + friendly poke in your ribs) .. "set it and forget it" will give you the exact kind of results you'd get with a prime.

Well stated and point taken.
