Actually.. your situation is incredibly common and most cheap certificates cover the www and root domain. I just looked at godaddy's site and it reads.. "> 1 certificate protects www.securemywebsites.net AND securemywebsites.net"
In your case a real wildcard would be unnecessary.

I wish I could change the top post so that I referenced two subdomains instead of what I wrote (www.domain.com and sub.domain.com). I'm just trying to understand if there's going to be a search penalty/trust lost if we switch to a wildcard certificate.

You essentially lose nothing with a wildcard in the way of security. domain.com and *.domain.com are secured. So if for some reason you have https:// indexed urls, then that won't hurt or change anything.
