Unfortunately wicd is not really lightweight. It has less dependencies
than nm-applet, but uses more CPU, RAM and RSS, especially when
automatic discovery of WLANs is enabled.

One more alternative could be pynetworkmanager [1]. It comes with an
xfce4-panel applet applet, but I don't know if it well maintained and
actually works.
