How to Order Adjectives

There is a rule for the proper order of adjectives in a sentence. The rule obeys the mnemonic: Never OPEN My Purse: Number, opinion, physical condition, essentials (size,shape, age, colour), nationality, material, and purpose. The best example of the adjective order is the movie title, My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding. It would have been strange to call the movie, My Greek, Big, Fat Wedding; which is precisely why we have a rule to keep adjectives in order!
