@Pino: Tampoco, pero los mexicanos tendemos a apegarnos a fórmulas de cortesía limitadas.

Whenever I confirm holiday flat rentals etc. my (Spanish) wife always insists that I put "Un cordial saludo", whereas I always want to put "Un saludo cordial" - it just looks more correct to my eyes.

What do you guys think? Have no fear, your opinions will not be quoted! If they were I would be the one to suffer!

Hola Sancho,
Mira, para mi son ambas correctas. Sin embargo prefiero 'un cordial saludo' , cómo dice tu esposa, pues es cosa de oído. Suena más 'fluído'

I agree with Pino, it's more about euphony than word order. Also, when you change the usual word order and put the adjective first, you emphasize the quality of the noun, so you're stressing the cordiality of the salutation.
