Wedding Garment (Matthew chapter 22 verses 11 and 12)

Wedding Garment (Matthew chapter 22 verses 11 and 12)
Quote:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there was a man which had not on a wedding garment. 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

In the Parable of the Feast (Matthew chapter 22 verses 1 to 14), Jesus speaks of a wedding garment. Does Orthodoxy believe that this wedding garment is a reference to the bodies of spiritualised matter which Christians will receive at the Second Coming of Jesus?

Is it correct to see the Holy and Divine Fire that 'builds' these new bodies as in some sense 'golden' in nature, and therefore to refer to this as in some way a golden wedding garment ?
