My bridal shower is going to be on a Sunday and a lot of our guests will be going to church in the morning. What do you tik would be a good time to start the shower. I say around 3. My mom says no earlier than 4… What do you think? (She wants the opinions of the bees!)

I think 4 pm is too late . It would interfere with dinner.
You do have a number of options. If church is out at noon, you could do 1 pm and serve brunch, then do the gift opening.
If you don’t want to do brunch, my preference would be 2 pm. It gives people time to get a light lunch, freshen up and/or change and get to the shower. It also means the shower will not interfere with dinner plans.

I agree with the PP that 4pm is too late for a Sunday shower. Most showers I’ve been to have started at either noon or 1pm. One of my bridal showers went from 3-7 on a Saturday, but the hostess served wine/champagne and lots of hors d’ouevres.
