It depends on your scene. If there is no fast movement, a wider shutter angle can be unnoticeable.

Obviously any increase in shutter time will increase motion blur, so how much you notice that depends on how much motion is in the shot and how sensitive you are to such a change -- there isn't some crossover number where it becomes noticeable, it just gets gradually more obvious the more you increase the shutter time depending on the amount of motion in the frame. If it is a static shot, no motion in the frame, you could shoot with a 360 degree shutter angle and no one would be able to tell.
You just have to judge your scene and how much movement there is in it, both subject-wise and camera-wise.

Why do you not want to add more light?
Apart from just plain not having enough lights .. there are some locations that wont allow any lights at all.. Ive had Art galleries.. Museums .. some hospitals..alot of labs.. ... its alot better in the LED days now.. but their rule books haven't always been up dated..
