for mirroring, you indeed need full recovery mode.
when in full recovery mode, you will need to implement a very regular transaction log backup process, to avoid that the .ldf files would just grow endless, as it's exactly the t-log backup that will mark the space inside the .ldf file(s) as "reusable".

that's all of the side effects...

in "simple" mode, logs will be written, but immediately be marked as "overwritable".
in such mode, you can only perform full database backups and hence only full database restores.

the "bulk-logged" option is between, but very dangerous.
you can perform t-log backups, but the restores would only be able to go to the point of a bulk action, after which you need to perform a full restore.
