TTL VS Manual for a wedding (or other event), what do you prefer?

For those who shoot wedding and/or event photos, what do you prefer to use on the shoot? TTL, or manual flash? Why?

I'd assume in this day and age most people use TTL since it's pretty much standard on all OEM flashes at this point. However, I thought it'd be an interesting question from which to hear back.

Given budget constraints thus far I've opted for the "cheap" third-party flashes that are manual only. Having learned to use speedlites with only manual, naturally, I've become accustomed to manual. However, I often wonder if it's worth the cost to make the jump to a TTL speedlite system.
