Just use manual WB lor. It is really simple to use. Take some test shots first and even informed guesstimation from the LCD is not that bad actually. Such a skill can become 2nd nature and not pose problems if you are skilled, even when you move from direct sun to shade....you will remember to change WB. Even if the WB guesstimation is inaccurate, it will just be a bit and won't pose a problem to correct with the R/G/B Levels in PS later on.

If it's a really important pic/moment and you don't wanna look like a dork taking so many test shots polariod style, use WB bracketing. 1 shot, 3 pics. It's there for you to take advantage of. :) Else take RAW if you don't mind the post processing.
