Traditional order (at least in the British tradition) is (1) Father of the bride, (2) groom, (3) best man. I think the reasoning is the FOB is the host so he welcomes people, then the groom does the thank yous on behalf of the couple, then the Best Man concludes by toasting the couple. But since you’re not doing the traditional speakers, I think you can do whatever order works best.

I usually see non-family first (first to the groom then to the bride), groom’s parents, bride’s parents, last the couple.
