Are you paying for her dress? Most 16 year old’s don’t have a lot of money. Or are your parents? "Expensive" can mean a lot of things.

Black tie…i’d pick a lovely cocktail dress. What color would you like her to wear? Start there. 

Since she is 16, i’m not sure i’d let her pick it out herself….16 year olds don’t really have an idea of what’s good for a wedding. Their taste is more prom-esque. And if you go off that, well, there is a lot of risque stuff on the shelves for prom right now. 

This is very $$$ but gorgeous: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3021358/0~2376776~2374327~2374331~6014150?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6014150&P=1

 Also what kind of body type does your sister have? That could really dictate what kind of dress she’d be most comfortable in. 

If it was me, I’d want my sister to look just as gorgeous as me so I’d pick something super glamorous, maybe a hollywood knock off dress or something. Obviously not as fancy as your dress, but you know what i mean

I really like the suggestions already given! I think she should wear long, both because it is a formal event and because it won’t make her look like a 16 year old (but not too grown up). I would suggest looking through magazines with her and see what styles she likes. I also like the idea of finding something that might work for a prom or another type of formal.
