Will my teeth move if I don't wear my retainer for one day?

I just got my braces off today, but my orthodontist told me to come back tomorrow for my retainer. He put a permanent retainer on the back of my bottom teeth, but I don't have one for my upper teeth. Will my teeth move in just one day?

    Contrary to what another user said, I have seen a patient's teeth shift, albeit very slightly, in one day.

    No they're not going to move
