|Maria and Julia did have their coming-out balls.

in consequence of the missive, Expectations and duties, penned by Mia I.
The Miss Bertrams were now fully established among the belles of the neighbourhood; and as they joined to beauty and brilliant acquirements a manner naturally easy, and carefully formed to general civility and obligingness, they possessed its favour as well as its admiration. Their vanity was in such good order that they seemed to be quite free from it, and gave themselves no airs; while the praises attending such behaviour, secured and brought round by their aunt, served to strengthen them in believing they had no faults.
Maria is 19 and Julia 18 when Sir Thomas left. After he parts, they go to balls and parties with their aunt, which means that they are out. Even if we don't read about coming-out balls for the Misses Bertram, it's unlikely that they didn't have them.
