Resolving a Tricky SSL Issue.

I have a very odd problem and am not sure where to turn since I have run into silence on various tech forums. Here's my issue. I have a site Magento site that is a combination of Wordpress header and footer and Magento creamy center. When checking out you the customer see's that the site is unsecure. Not good.

The pure Wordpress site is at the root domain so www.site.com, Magento is at shop.site.com. The SSL is set for the shop.site.com subdomain. Since I am pulling Wordpress header and footers for Magento (it generates the primary site navigation and pulls all the various social media data) I am running into the dreaded unsecure content errors which is very blatant in Chrome with it's crossed out red HTTPS.
I am trying to figure out a solution to this before the client kills me. I was thinking of just getting a certificate for the Wordpress (www.site.com) side of things. We'd take a slight speed hit, but I'm not sure what else to do besides completely rebuilding the Magento header and footer to kind of mimic the Wordpress one. I'd really like to not go this route as it's a lot of work and it sucks from a user experience standpoint. My only experience with SSL is buying a certificate and having it work, so the nitty gritty details escape me. I'm also a designer not a developer so while I get my hands dirty and can mess with the php of Magento etc, I am no expert.
Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!
